Celebrated our wedding anniversary. Enjoyed the calamari, beet salad, beef, and salmon. Clean, quiet, and cosy. Attentive staff. Would return to celebrate another special occasion.

We were there on Saturday evening
We both had the pate. Excellent
One diner had the salmon and the other the beef cheek. Both excellent.
Service was very professional.
Their wine list is completely local encouraging local producers
Prices were fine with the quality provided
We have been there before and will return

A cozy restaurant , pleasantly appointed. We were entertaining american relatives and although the food is excellent the servings are small and everything is a la carte which when added up was very pricey for simple but good entrees. The menu is limited

Had a lovely meal. Recommend the pate (mild and flavourful), and calamari (tender) appetizers. The salmon and duo of beef mains were very nice. Try a Caesar teaser made with aqavit! Seating is open and close to fellow diners - thus the 4/5 ambience. I would return.

Had a wonderful dinner here with my wife. Are outside, so I can’t comment on the sound level inside. Service was impeccable. Attentive, but not stifling. All of our food was excellent. The house made pate was a little bland, but was served with excellent toasted bread. The beef duo was very good. The contrasting flavors of the 2meats worked surprisingly well. My wife enjoyed her salmon as well. Finished with the chocolate pate which is a decadent take on a deconstructed snickers bar. Would definitely go here again.

Always enjoy a lunch with a special friend at Wellington court and have come on and off for years. Service always wonderful, never rushed and perfect for conversation. Would love to see return of a few old faves like the chicken, cashew mandarin salad and even a delicious Caesar.
Always lots of chAnce. So easy to reserve on Open table.

A wonderful surprise with creatively delicious food in a calming, light filled space. Service is both professional and informally friendly... perfect comfort and hospitality. Definitely worth visiting. They have several other food ventures in the same area that we're hearing great things about, so will be exploring every single one of them.

My mom found this hidden gem online. We were looking for a Mother's Day lunch before heading to the Niagara Outlet mall. They prepared a special menu for Mother's Day and we were all extremely pleased with how tasty our lunches were. Our server was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was a fresh, modern decor with beautiful bold flower wall art. Highly recommend. They also have a group room upstairs for larger parties.

A great restaurant and excellent service! The beef tartare is sublime and the fried brussel sprouts are worth a visit in themselves. My only critique would be that the fish entrée portion was extremely small.

I highly recommend this restaurant and will certainly be returning.

My sister and I went to Wellington Court for a pre-theatre dinner. The food and the service was wonderful! We both started with the Mixed Greens salad- so good with fresh kale and chopped apples. I enjoyed the Saffron Spaghetti (delicious!!!) and my sister had the Rigatoni which she said was also delicious! I would definitely recommend Wellington Court for anyone looking for a downtown St. Catharines restaurant.

It was again a memorable experience at Wellington Court with a friend from Victoria, B.C. Each of us enjoyed a tasty and well-presented meal. The service was great as usual. Only thing I need now is the recipe for the Spaghetti with scallops dish. We'll be back--soon.
(It was a bit noisy which was surprising given that we were there mid week.)

One of my favourite spots in Niagara. Dale and Erik have a great little restaurant. My brother and I stopped in for lunch....he had the rigatoni, I had the perch. Both were delicious (a tad too much salt on the perch, but nothing to diminish the meal). We both had a microbrew....excellent. Our server was cheerful and attentive. We'll be back!

Have been a customer over many years. Have had periods of trying new places, as many have
opened in the area, where originally, Wellington Court was one of very few consistently
good.

Came for a special 93rd birthday lunch. Food, service good. Always think, hmmm, should
come more often. Love it, it is a neighbourhood treasure.

Thank you.
